Full Moon In Virgo

In just a couple of hours, a full supermoon occurs at 1° Virgo. A full Moon is when the Sun and Moon are in opposite signs, so in this case the Sun is in the water sign of Pisces. Full moons illuminate life areas that are in opposition to each other and as the opposition is a stressful aspect there will be some tension involved which leads to an ending or changes, however the astrology of the full moon is mostly positive with the potential for breakthroughs, growth, committment and adventures. A supermoon occurs when the Moon is closest to the earth and the effects of this lunation last for about two weeks.

The energy of the January eclipse season created much instability and stress with the effects still being felt in the present day, but the full moon will ground some of this erratic energy, and we’ll start to see positive and tangible results. Relationships that have been hit with multiple hardships will enter a calmer period with both partners feeling fully commited to the relationship and the responsibilities that come with it.

We can use the spiritual gifts of both Pisces and Virgo to guide us through the next few weeks. The signs seem very different, but working together at their highest frequencies they make a complete system helping us to develop our full potential. Virgo helps us manage the small details when Pisces helps us to see the bigger picture. Virgo uses logic and the left brain when making decisions and Pisces uses intuition and claircognizance. Both signs teach us that our highest calling is to be of service to our fellow humans, and the animal and plant kingdoms.

Chiron enters Aries

Chiron enters Aries on Monday and this is one of the most important transits of the year. Chiron will remain in Aries until 2027.

What is Chiron?

In Greek Mythology, Chiron was a Master healer but he was unable to save himself from the deadly wound that he received from a poisoned arrow. In the birth chart, the placement of Chiron, which is a minor planet, represents our most painful wound, the one that we received early in life that we struggle to heal and continues to be a “sore spot.” This wounding may manifest over and over again, attracting the same archetypes and situations until the native acknowledges and makes peace with the wound and banishes any person or situation from their life that is of a similar energy to the original wounding.

As well as wounds, Chiron in a birth chart can indicate musical and artistic gifts and talents, healing abilities including natural medicine and energy healing, a flair for Astrology and someone who has the ability to act as a teacher or guide for other people.

The lowest frequency of a Chiron wound would be to hurt others in the same way that we ourselves were hurt. We can work with it from a higher vibration and use it to help other people. One example of this would be a victim of child abuse who later goes on to train as a counsellor – she still lives with the pain but she uses her experience to give children the help that she never received.

Chiron’s energy is Shamanic. When I read charts, I’ve noticed that Shamanic people have a “strong” or heavily aspected Chiron, frequently placed in the 12th house which gives the person the natural ability to travel through different spiritual realms. These are usually people who have suffered through long periods of physical or mental illness and had difficult childhoods, but always felt in tune with the spirit world. Chiron people frequently feel alienated and shunned by society and are often diagnosed with disorders and end up on medication. The Shamanic view of some mental illness is that it can sometimes be an initiatory soul crisis which aids spiritual development and encourages the person to surrender to the healing path and answer the call. Finding the meaning and lessons in this crisis is to unlock the cure.

During Chiron’s transit through Pisces, we surrendered to our wounds and pain and we felt compassion and empathy for other wounded beings. There was a tendency to “wallow” over our problems and play the martyr or victim. Some issues were caused by loose boundaries and deception and we may have glossed over the flaws of others and worn rose tinted glasses in our relationships rather than facing the truth. Many people suffered at the hands of psychic vampires who used manipulation in order to tug at our heartstrings. We made excuses for the people who hurt us and contributed to our own unhappiness by giving them a place in our lives.

Chiron in Aries will bring opportunities to heal our identities and we’ll become pro active in our approach to healing ourselves. No longer content with wallowing and reliving the past, we declare war on pain and on our (no longer hidden) enemies.

Armed with the wisdom gleaned from Chiron’s journey through Pisces, we aggressively fight for the right to be our true selves and to break through the situations in our lives that cause us to feel disempowered. Many of us follow the same old routine – work a 9-5 job, watch TV, get married, have kids, buy a house – but is this who you really are, or are you only conforming to society’s expectations of you? What is your identity when all of this is stripped away? Are you working in an office every day, living in suburbia when the real you would rather sell everything and drive a camper van around the world?

Chiron in Aries gives us the opportunity to live authentically but first of all we may have to experience an identity crisis and work towards peeling away the layers of falseness that we’ve worn over the years. The transit is the next phase of our spiritual awakening and the things that used to be important to us, like job titles and celebrities, may no longer interest us as much. We may experience increased conflict during this transit but we recover quickly as we learn to take back power from those who stole it from us. Reaching another stage of initiation on the path to enlightenment, it’s time for us to master the element of fire and review how we express it in our lives.

As the earth switches gears to move towards a different frequency and dimension, we’ll see more clearly through the illusions of society around us and as a result of that, we’ll unapologetically upset the apple cart and set fire to the status quo. As we shake off the shackles of the control system that we were born into, we furiously fight for our independence and freedom and demand the right to be ourselves. During Chiron’s transit in Pisces, many of us became aware that we were being manipulated by the fake news of the mainstream media and it was difficult to identify fiction from fact. Armed with the truth, the energy of Chiron in Aries helps us to form a new, authentic world which begins with the self realisation of each individual.

Total lunar eclipse in Leo

Early tomorrow morning a total lunar eclipse occurs at 1° Leo at 5:16AM UK time (around Midnight in the States). A lunar eclipse is an extra potent and magickal full moon which creates massive life changes over the next six months. Eclipses can create a time of crisis and unexpected events.
An eclipse marks the end of one life cycle and the beginning of something new – for example an engagement, marriage, divorce, birth or death, a dramatic lifestyle change, a relocation, a spiritual awakening or a shift in consciousness.
Eclipses are always “big” and this eclipse is extra unstable due to a square from Uranus, the planet of sudden change, independence and rebellion. This is the last eclipse that falls on the Leo/Aquarius axis and we may be faced with sudden changes connected to our Fathers and Fatherhood. The eclipse marks the end of a cycle where wounds running down our paternal lines were highlighted, and hopefully we were able to glean the wisdom and identify the spiritual lessons of the eclipses from amongst the chaos.
The next cycle of eclipses will fall on the Cancer Capricorn axis which will bring our attention to wounds that run down the Maternal line connected to Motherhood and nurturement.
A total lunar eclipse occurs when a full moon makes a tight conjunction to the karmic North or South lunar nodes. In this case the moon makes a conjunction to the North Node which means we will feel the eclipse energy more on an internal and emotional level. The eclipse is helping us to “clean house” and banish toxic relationships and habits which no longer serve us so we can work together on creating a massive shift of consciousness and global awakening.
The eclipse will shake things up and cause endings, but in a few months we will look back and realize that these people or situations were obctacles in our paths that needed to be removed as they were blocking us from true happiness. An eclipse will strip away everything that is preventing us from living as authentic, spiritual beings.

All planets direct

Currently all of the planets in the skies are in direct motion (not in retrograde). This is a wonderful opportunity to make some real progress at last and our lives feel like they’re moving on quickly. Such a difference from the last quarter of 2018 when we were hit with one retrograde after another and felt stuck and bogged down by never ending problems. Now the chains have fallen off and it’s up to us to take advantage of the new energy and create positive changes. Some persistant problems may seem to accelerate during the next few months which is the universe’s way of trying to push us towards a solution.

Venus enters Sagittarius

Venus, the planet of love and pleasure, has entered Sagittarius where she will transit until the 3rd of February, bringing adventure and freedom to our love lives.
The energies of this transit help us to seek the truth and discover the spiritual meaning of our relationships. Sagittarius is connected to foreign lands and we may feel more drawn to travel at this time and start to plan our summer holidays.
Sagittarius is a spiritual sign and during this transit we will take pleasure in hanging out with spiritual friends or those from a different cultural background.
During the transit of Venus in Scorpio, our relationships were intense and may have been touched by jealousy or tragedy. Now that the Goddess of love starts her journey through the firey realm of Sagittarius, joy and excitement can return to our love lives and we become more hopeful about the future.
Sagittarius is an affectionate and big hearted sign as long as you give them enough room to breathe and their sense of adventure is endearingly innocent.

New Moon Solar Eclipse in Capricorn

Tonight, a new moon partial solar eclipse occurs at 15° degrees Capricorn. Seeds planted on a solar eclipse create a massively powerful and life changing new beginning, so we should set our intentions now for the next six months.
An eclipse marks the end of a life cycle and the beginning of something new – for example an engagement, marriage, divorce, new career, birth or death, or a dramatic lifestyle change. Eclipses are always “big” and in the sign of Capricorn, this Solar eclipse promises success and victory for the pure of heart and hard workers.
The eclipse is ruled by Saturn which is the Lord of Karma and sits close to the karmic south node of the moon giving a sense of fate or destiny. The events of the eclipse will show us where in our lives we have become stuck or blocked, but it’s up to us to take action and initiate the changes. The eclipse may cause us to revisit old situations from the past so that they can be finally resolved. People who have got away with deception may find that their luck finally runs out over the course of this eclipse season.
Events on the south node may be connected to our past lives, and over the next six months we get the opportunity to end negative soul contracts and wound mate relationships. An eclipse on the south node of the moon is a good time to do past life work, and uncover hidden gifts and skills from past lives. Our birth charts tell the story of our past lives.
The energy of this eclipse favours long term success, especially in finances and business and ending negative karmic cycles.

Full Moon in Cancer

The Moon has entered Cancer. The energies of this lunar transit help us to get in touch with our emotions and we may feel like staying at home with our families rather than going out. We may feel more moody and touchy at this time and prone to comfort eating.

This is a FULL moon at 0° Cancer marking the winter solstice. The moon makes an opposition to Saturn which may cause us to feel some sorrow or pessimism, but our problems may not be as bad as we first think. Full moons illuminate a life area which then causes transformation and the position of Uranus in the full moon chart indicates that making changes now will result in a positive outcome later. The cardinal full moon encourages us to initiate changes and take action for the best results.

A full Moon occurs when the Sun and Moon make an opposition and in this case the Sun is in Capricorn. Cancer and Capricorn are the Mother and Father of the zodiac and this lunation may highlight the relationships that we have with our parents and children.

A romantic sextile between Venus and Neptune in the full moon chart means that relationships should flow easily at this time and we get pleasure from healthy escapism from reading or watching our favourite TV shows.
